Patrick O'Dell is a Los Angeles based photographer. Professionally, Patrick has traveled the world as a senior staff photographer for Thrasher and photo editor for Vice Magazine in New York. He currently is the staff photographer and videographer for Altamont Apparel.
O'Dell shoots skaters skating, hangers hanging, and up-too-late, out-too-often night dwellers doing what comes naturally. Somehow amid all the black eyes, crowded dance floors, beat-up hotel rooms, and beautiful famous ladies, O'Dell manages to keep the scene honest. This candid intimacy with his subject matter combined with his poetic eye for finding beauty in even the grimiest of scenes give Patrick's work a natural style that is truly his own.
